This Bonus Content includes more information on David Patchen, his glass education, and how his favorite music influences his work. A separate Hot Glass Studio Profile entitled Murrine Maker David Patchen - Diving into Detail was published on page 6 of the March/April 2016 issue of Glass Art. Back issue magazine Digital Issue and CD available.
